Ok gang, i traded what I consider the most awesome vehicle made under $200,000 which was a Alpina XB7 so the bar was extremely high. So after two cross country trips and just over 5000 miles we are very happy with our GW. Going from well over 600hp to under 500hp I knew I would miss my rocket ship but the GW does have adequate power and I’m plenty happy with its power. On our first long trip and several miles back and forth to work there was no surprise to the 15-17 mpg BUT today I calculated a tank that did 20.1 mpg on the interstate in hilly Tennessee running 75-85! That was more than a shock. This thing has done everything you could expect it too. We haven’t had any problems. It’s very roomy and comfortable. I’m not unhappy but certainly not overjoyed with the assisted driving cruise control. I would bet it’s Mercedes’ technology because it acts like my 2019 GLS63 I had a few years ago. Not terrible but it don’t come close to BMW’s assisted driving. But again, it’s not bad I just know what the best feels like. The only things that could really be better is the active assisted driving, make it available in the longer version which is supposed to be in the works and put the hellcat motor in it!!!!

Nice to see a positive review for a change. We are approaching 9000 miles, long cross country trips with quite a few hundred miles of off road driving (mostly surrounded by Wranglers, Tacomas and the occasional Bronco). The GW performs extremely well on and off road and is super comfortable, suspension and seats.
Besides some broken fascias from a bottom encounter and torn out bolts on the roof rack no problems. The ADA on my GW III tends to hug the middle a bit too much (correction needed with approaching trucks on narrow roads). Combined fuel "economy" on and off road 14.5 mpg, with slightly larger off road tires.
Could not be any happier with it! I have been driving Jeeps, Land Rovers, Range Rovers for 50 years and this the winner.
